Note that this doesn't completely fix the bug though... (see below)

What the code does is it just logs an error if the value is out of
range, but then it happily continues dereferencing the array anyway...
In the original libgcrypt code [1] (which BTW needs this patch, too),
there is log_bug() instead of pr_err(), which doesn't just log the
error, but also abort()'s the program. BUG() would be the correct
kernel equivalent for log_bug(). It seems the whole kernel's MPI
library clone should be re-audited for other instances of pr_*()'s
that should in fact be BUG()'s (or even better, WARN_ONCE()'s with
proper error handling, but that might diverge the code from libgcrypt
too much...).
